Fairies, music and bubbles - right next to an awesome park. Great excuse to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

We’re at Mackie Road Mulgrave until 1pm. Come on down!

Now bear with me, because this is going to sound weird. A friend of ours popped over a few weeks ago with Pizza and Indian Curry. Strange mix, I know, but wow!

Sensationally crusty pizza from @petrinopizza dipped in Malai Kofta (medium) from Muskaan K Indian Gourmet, just across the road, is ridiculously addictive.

Give it a go and #SupportLocal in #Huntingdale!

Thirty degrees on a Sunday afternoon. Where would you rather be than at the MGA for an afternoon summer series music session?

We’re here until 5pm; pop on down!

Look at the amazing selection of cakes available at Bensons Mt.Waverley. Coffee was pretty amazing too, and the kids loved their milkshakes and eggs. In other news, I got roped in to colouring in again 🙃

@saigoncuisine_oakleigh is a pretty unassuming place, in fact we’ve driven past it many times before. With all our favourite takeaway places closed at the moment, we took a risk. And boy did it pay off. 

Sensational salt and pepper calamari and the bo luc lak was melt in your mouth. And clearly Zoe loves the pawn crackers 🤣

Brilliant find - we’ll be back!

Slime making workshops and bubbles; what else would you do on a Saturday afternoon in Hamilton Place?

Don’t forget we’ve got bands playing music between 2pm and 5pm tomorrow in the Winbourne Rd parklet (next to Son of Tucci). It’s totally free and the weather forecast is amazing.

See you there!

Pedestrian priority improvements are coming to Oakleigh!

Prioritising pedestrian movements in our activity centres was an addition to our Council Plan that I fought for back in 2017. Over the past few years, you would have seen the transformation around the Oakleigh Activity Centre.

Many of you would also have noticed that there is an informal crossing outside the Fruit Barn on Atherton Road. A pedestrian crossing was originally planned there when we reconstructed the road, but is location was counter intuitive to pedestrian movement from the multi-deck carpark to Eaton Mall. After much discussion with officers, they eventually agreed to install crossings on all three sides of the intersection of Palmerston Grove and Atherton Road.

Walking April to school, I've also seen many close misses and seen many parents darting across Drummond Street at Atherton Road with prams, trying to beat cars turning - so we're also proposing to install a pedestrian crossing there as well.

And finally - many of you have complained since the removal of the raised island platforms on the pedestrian crossings around the station, so we're proposing to put them back.

Find out more, view the concept designs, and provide your feedback at shape.monash.vic.gov.au (link in my bio)

Most of you would be aware of escalating COVID case numbers. Sadly, our staff are not immune and many are isolating

At this time, all services remain operational, but this may not be sustainable moving forward - check our website & socials for updates. I will also post updates here as I receive them

We ask you all to remain patient and respectful towards our staff, who are stepping outside of their areas of expertise to ensure business continuity. They’re human, just like you, and just trying to do their best in an incredibly fluid and difficult situation

Instead of taking it out on them, feel free to contact me should frustrations boil over

After a recommendation, we took a trip to @waltermountwaverley for brunch yesterday, and we weren’t disappointed.

Chilli scrambled eggs were a hit (for the grownups) and the hash browns were delish! Awesome ambience outside in the sunshine too. 

Check them out!

Look who I found at the Summer Series in Warrawee Park - former Mayor Brian Little 😮

Grab a blanket and picnic basket and pop down - free Jazz/Funk/Soul band running through until 5pm

I always find this time of the year incredibly frustrating. It’s a time when I want to have brunch every day at cafes and grab takeaway for dinner. But most places are closed 😢

Have any of you got any recommendations of local cafes or takeaway venues that make delicious food so that we can all #SupportLocal during these tough times?
